Free Speech/Hate Speech: Limits of Free Expression in Schools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The U.S. Supreme Court held long ago that students and teachers "don't shed their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse gate," but is there a right to wear a confederate flag to school? A "Trump" hat? A "Black Lives Matter" T-shirt? May teachers express opinions when discussing current events? Should students be permitted to do so, in class or the school newspaper? Should a Neo-Nazi Club be permitted? If so, should a teacher be permitted, or required, to serve as advisor? Board attorneys will discuss these questions and others, testing the limits of free speech in public schools.
